Health information sharing has become a vital part of modern healthcare delivery. E-health technologies provide efficient and effective ways of sharing medical information, but give rise to issues that neither the medical professional nor the consumers have control over. Information security and patient privacy are key impediments that hinder sharing information as sensitive as health information. Health information interoperability is another issue which hinders the adoption of available e health technologies. In this paper we propose a solution for these problems in terms of information accountability, the HL7 interoperability standard and social networks for manipulating personal health records.
